U.S. Office of War Information. Public Domain Footage US government presents a record of relocation of persons of Japanese decent, 2/3 American citizens, 1/3 aliens. Film shows how kindly the relocation was accomplished as the US government relocates Japanese Americans inland. These Americans were so cooperative because they were presented with great opportunity in new places.

Not exactly how it happened ...
While I appreciate the historical value of this film clip, in truth it is nothing more than a whitewash of what actually happened to residents of Japanese ancestry, who were forced to leave most of their belongings behind and relocated to "housing" that, even by the standards of that time, were dumps.
